Dragon Breath by Ayesha Kajee

Poem

In his eyes
Tourmaline eyes
I read promises
of universes unexplored
Magical mystery tours
Macchu Picchu for the soul
Beckoning
Promising escape
Oblivion from greige
In Mythic
Technicolour

So I spread
Dream idylls
before him like pearls
Wrap him in
Supercalifragilistic fantasy
Deceiving myself
Believing in the
Tourmalines
Even as he steps not lightly
on dreams of
Synchronicity

And in his hands
Behold my world
Discoball facets
Snippets from promised galaxies
His fingers clench
He speaks
Travesties
Poor world
Poor friable fragile world
Vaporised in a pall
Dragon Breath
